Multi-Scale Numerical Analysis of the Effect of Microstructural Features on the Mechanical Behavior of Polycrystalline Ti-6Al-4V AlloyFatna BENMESSAOUD, Vincent VELAY, Mohammed CHEIKH, Vanessa VIDAL, Christine BOHER & Farhad RÉZAÏ-ARIA
The present work aims to model the influence of microstructural features of Ti-6Al-4V titanium alloy on its mechanical behavior. A multi-scale approach based on crystal plasticity is considered. The elasto-viscoplastic constitutive equations of Meric-Cailletaud are modified to take into consideration the effect of the grain size by introducing the Hall-Petch relationship at the local scale. This modified model is coupled with finite element calculations under small strain assumption to simulate the monotonic mechanical behavior of...
Approaches to the Determination of the Working Area of Parallel Robots and the Analysis of Their Geometric CharacteristicsDmitry MALYSHEV, Mikhail POSYPKIN, Larisa RYBAK & Alexander USOV
The article presents and experimentally confirms two approaches to the problem of determining the working area of parallel robots using the example of a planar robot DexTAR with two degrees of freedom. The proposed approaches are based on the use of constraint equations of coordinates. In the first approach, the original kinematic equations of coordinates in the six-dimensional space (two coordinates describing the position of the output link and four coordinates – the rotation angles...
Implementation of Fuzzy PID Controller in Cascade with Anti-Windup to Real-Scale Test Equipment for PavementsOscar Javier REYES-ORTIZ, Juan Sebastian USECHE-CASTELBLANCO & German Leandro VARGAS-FONSECA
In the industry and academia, large-scale equipment has been developed, which requires control systems that provide safety and efficiency with the lowest possible energy consumption. In the industrial cascade control system, nested controllers have been a versatile tool for the control of large-scale equipment. Research shows that these types of controllers improve their performance with the integration of artificial intelligence algorithms and prevention methods against controller saturation. For this reason, this paper presents the development...
Theoretical and Numerical Analyses of an Aluminium-Concrete Composite Beam with Channel Shear ConnectorsŁukasz POLUS & Maciej SZUMIGAŁA
This paper presents a numerical simulation and a theoretical investigation of an aluminiumconcrete composite (ACC) beam subjected to bending. ACC structures are similar to steel-concrete composite (SCC) structures. However, their girders are made of aluminium instead of steel. The use of ACC structures is limited because of the lack of relevant design rules. Due to this fact the authors suggest applying the theory for SCC structures to ACC structures. In this paper, the methods for...
A new analytical algorithm for determining the elastoplastic parameters for soft, medium and hard plastic cohesive soils, corresponding to *MAT_005_SOIL_AND_FOAM material model available LS-Dyna FE code, was formulated. The numerical modelling of the post-soil subsystem, applicable in the modelling of road safety barrier crash tests using this material model of the roadside dehydrated ground, was developed. The methodology was presented on the example of a Sigma-100 steel post partly driven into the soil and subjected...
The paper deals with the numerical homogenization of structures made of non-linear porous material. Material non-linearity causes a significant increase in computational costs for numerical homogenization procedure. An application of the response surface methodology allows a significant reduction of the computational effort providing good approximation precision. Finite element method commercial software is employed to solve the boundary-value problem in both scales. Due to the significant reduction in computing time, the proposed attitude may be applied...
